Watch over everything, day or night
With a massive 140º field of view, this camera has practically no blindspots. And when it’s night time, a motion-activated spotlight will switch on whenever someone steps into its sight — so there’s no sneaking past your security under the cover of darkness. Plus, you can even zoom in 8x to see important details like faces and license plates from 15 feet away.
Warn off intruders from your home
If someone’s lurking around your home, tell them it’s time to leave using the camera’s two-way audio. And whenever your burglary sensors go off, your camera’s built-in siren will go off too — alerting the neighbors and sending intruders running.
Detects people. Ignores distractions.
Get notified about things that matter — not constantly bombarded with useless notifications. It uses neural network processing to distinguish people from vehicles, animals, and other distractions. Plus, you can even create custom activity zones on your property, so that your camera is only monitoring where it matters.

The recommended mounting height is 6-8 ft from the ground and angled 30 degrees down. Face the camera towards entry/exit points on your property such as your driveway, front walkway or back garden. You can also use outdoor cameras to monitor entry/exit points into your home such as facing your front door and garage doors. Be sure to use a stable ladder and ask for assistance from a helper if needed.
Up to 30 feet - depending on mounting height.
The Outdoor Security Camera has 2 night vision modes which can be selected in the Camera Settings menu:
Standard - With infrared (default) night vision, your camera can always see in black and white up to 30 feet away at night.
